in reply to How to introduce 8 year olds to (Perl) programming?

When I first learned about computers and how a computer program worked, the metaphor used was very, very simple: recipes. A program is a recipe.

Some recipes are used by other recipies, for example if you need a boiled egg in a greater meal. This is the most natural description of modularity I've heard so far.

I think I was 9 or 10 years old when I started programming.
